Legislative Assembly of Primorye adopted amendments on the participation of self-promoted candidates in the elections for governor
Deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Primorsky Territory at an extraordinary meeting made changes to the electoral code of the region. Now not only representatives of political parties, but also self-promoted candidates can be candidates for governor elections.
Amendments to the electoral code of Primorsky Krai were adopted in three readings. According to the press service of the Legislative Assembly, a preliminary discussion of the initiative of the regional Election Commission was held at the meeting of the relevant committee. The bill was also supported by the committee on regional politics and the rule of law. A self-nominated candidate, in addition to receiving support from deputies of representative bodies of municipalities and elected heads of municipalities, will need to collect signatures of voters.
According to the Acting Governor of Primorsky Territory Oleg Kozhemyako, who intends to go to the elections of the head of the region as a self-promoted candidate, the decision expands the possibilities of citizens to participate in the elections. According to him, such changes are necessary and dictated by time, since any restrictions leave a certain imprint and cause, among other things, the protest attitude of the population towards the electoral system.
